Stade Sylvio Cator

The Stade Sylvio Cator is a multi-purpose stadium in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It is currently used mostly for association football matches, and is turfed with artificial turf.[2]

History

The stadium bears the name of Haitian Olympic medalist and footballer Sylvio Cator. It was named after him in 1952. Before then the stadium was called the Parc Leconte.[3] and then the Stade Paul-Magloire.[1] It is where the Haiti national football team play its home games. It has hosted the 1973 CONCACAF Championship, where the home team were crowned as champions[4] and the 1991 CONCACAF Women's Championship where the final match between the USA and Canada reached overcapacity of 30,000.[5][6]

The stadium was partly destroyed by the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, and a tent-city sprouted within its confines.[2]
